This local sport played by two opponents is similar to fencing and originated from the techniques used by Canarian aborigines to defend themselves. Each contender holds a stick with both hands and attempts to mark the parts of the body that his opponent exposes, though always avoiding any physical harm. Many of Tenerife's municipalities have their own stick game schools, each with their own particular way of playing this traditional sport.
